Self-consumption and self-production: clarification

1- The rate of self-consumption is the share of the energy you actually consume.

If you produce 100 and you consume 80. Your self-consumption rate is 80% (which is very good). It also means that you inject 20 on the network.

2- The rate of self-production corresponds to the share of the electrical consumption of your home provided by your solar panels. In other words, it’s the amount of energy that your solar panels produce.

How to increase this rate of self-production?

  • Opt for photovoltaic installations
  • Consume more during the day
  • Add batteries to your facility to cover a portion of your electricity needs at night;
  • Reduce your consumption by investing in appliances that consume less energy.


Your solar panels are installed very generally on your roof or a sunshade and thus transform the radiation of the sun in continuous electric current. This continuous solar current then flows into the inverter, or into your microinverters, which transforms it into alternating current. This green electricity then feeds your home: it heats your domestic water, runs your induction hobs and charges your smartphone.
